How to Easily Record iPad Screen with Dr.Fone iPad Screen Recorder

Being able to record the iPad screens is very useful. In the past, if you wanted to create a video in which you would have to record your device’s screen then you would have had to use a camera. Similarly, recording any handheld device is incredibly useful although with an iPad, given that the display is much bigger it allows for better recordings.

With this in mind, today we are going to be taking a look at how you can optimize Dr.Fone – iPad Screen Recorder, what you can use the program for, and some of the methods that can be used to record your iPad’s screen.

Part 1. Recording Your iPads Screen without Jailbreaking In 1-Click

With this method, you are able to record your iPad (or any iOS device) using Dr.Fone – iPad Screen Recorder. Below are the steps that you must take to do so.

Step #1 – First, make sure that you have both downloaded and installed the Dr.Fone – iOS Screen Recorder program.

Step #2 – Once Dr.Fone is installed, launch the program.

Step #3 – Once the program has loaded up, you will be shown a variety of different options. On the left panel, click on the “More Tools” option. Following this, click on the “iOS Screen Recorder” option.

Step #4 – In order to move on, make sure that your PC and your iPad are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network.


Step #5 – On your iPad, swipe up from the bottom to reveal the control center. Here, click on the “AirPlay” option. Select the “Dr.Fone” option which appears and enable the “Mirroring” feature.


Step #6 – Once your devices are connected, simply start and stop your recordings using the menu shown on Dr.Fone. It’s that easy.


iPad Screen recording has never been a difficult task although what is difficult is finding a screen recorder that gets the job done to a high standard. With Dr.Fone, you are given a high-quality recording and you don’t have to go through the complicated setup process.

On top of that, you don’t even have to connect your device to your computer as everything is transmitted through AirPlay. This method is the number one method out there, although there are others available.

Part 2. Using AirShou to Record iPad Screen

An alternate method to using rather than use Dr.Fone – iPad Screen Recorder is to use AirShou, an application that allows you to easily record an iOS device’s screen without the use of a computer. Considering the fact that most methods require a computer, this is something to keep note of.

Step #1 – Take your iPad, or any other iOS device, and head over to the “Emu4ios” store. You can access the store by clicking here.

Step #2 – Once you’re in the store, search for “AirShou”. If multiple applications are shown, click on the app which is created by Shou.TV and click “Get”.


Note: by default, your device will prompt you not to install the application as it is untrusted. Ignore this notification.

Step #3 – After the application has downloaded and installed, open it up.


Note: If the application does not install, follow the path Settings, General, Profile, Device Management, and mark AirShou as trusted. After you do this, try installing it once more.

Step #4 – Once you’ve opened up the application you will be prompted to either sign in or sign up. If you don’t want to spend the time signing up, simply connect either your Facebook or Google + account to the app.


Step #5 – Now that you’re signed in, it’s time to record the iPad screen. You will be shown 2 recording options, “Broadcasting” and “Recording. You can click the small arrows next to these options to define your settings.


Step #6 – Once your settings are as they should be, simply enable “AirPlay” and select the “AirShou” option, followed by enabling “Mirroring”, and you’re ready to go.

As you can see, there is a little bit more to this method than there is with using Dr.Fone – iOS Screen Recorder, although it gets the job done.


PS: let’s figure out how to Record BBC iPlayer.

Dr.Fone VS AirShou

Even though both of the methods that we’ve looked at are viable options, it’s clear that using Dr.Fone over AirShou is the superior option. Below are some of the most comparable points between the two.

  • AirShou is not a trusted application whereas Dr.Fone is a trusted method.
  • Due to how Dr.Fone is run using a computer, you don’t have to worry about recordings taking up all of your storage space.
  • There is no need for you to create an account to use Dr.Fone although you are required to with AirShou.
  • Privacy is important and with AirShou, it isn’t guaranteed. For full privacy, while you record the iPad screen, use Dr.Fone.

While there are a lot more comparable points that could be made, it all comes down to your preference. Even though I’d recommend using Dr.Fone, if AirShou displays some features that stand out to you then, by all means, give it a shot.

Dr.Fone – iPad Screen Recorder

Our focus with Dr.Fone today was on how it can be used as an iOS Screen Recorder, but don’t let that confuse you. Dr.Fone has a variety of other features available, such as:

  • Real-Time Mirroring. That’s right. As you perform tasks on your iOS device they will appear on your monitor. There is no delay in the mirrored display.
  • Content. There are no limits to the content that you can record using Dr.Fone. From tutorials to gameplay, whatever it may be.
  • Free. If you were to purchase Dr.Fone you would be wide open to a lot more features, although if you aren’t in a place to purchase the program then a free version is available.
  • Compatibility. In terms of compatibility, Dr.Fone toolkit for iOS is compatible with all iOS devices that run iOS 7.1 to iOS 15.

There is no doubt in my mind that if you are looking to record an iPad screen,  iOS Screen Recorder is the program that you’re looking for. This program sets you up with all of the tools that you need in one convenient location.
